Monster Hunter Rise, the popular action RPG developed by Capcom, has received a new update that fixes some freezing and crashing issues. If you have encountered such problems when playing the game, you should download this patch immediately.

Update 3.8 also adds a new feature that notifies you of add-on content on the title screen and at the Courier. This can be enabled or disabled by heading to Options > Promotion.

Notable Bugs Fixed

There are things that you can do on the “Mutual Likes” list that will result in an empty slot appearing out of nowhere. Selecting this slot will cause the game to freeze. Fortunately, the devs have resolved this issue.

Another fixed issue is a crash if the game takes too long to boot. Although this happens occasionally, it is still a good thing that the devs are on top of the situation.

A problem when using items via the Radial Menu when your weapon is drawn out has been addressed. Apparently, it was caused by issues with the consumption of crafting items in some circumstances. You do not have to worry about this anymore.
